Organic Little Pot of Bliss!

Just from reading the product information you can see what a high quality concoction it is. To contain 100% organic ingredients which haven't been watered down in the slightest is a breath of fresh air. I love the glass jar with silver screw lid, it gives...

Inexpensive whilst doing a good job.

Packaging is normal ELF; basic but crisp. It's a great product for keeping the brows where they should be, it's kind of like a top coat to seal them on. For just £3.75 it's worth every penny.

Turkish Delight smelling Hand Cream. Go for it!

My initial thought was the packaging looks nice and lady like, it's very much Melvita's style. I love the flip top as it is so much easier to use than a screw top, how hard is it to reapply a screw top when your hands have had cream...

My Favourite Shower Oil of all Time - Pure Bliss!

I had heard good things about this and decided to buy a big bottle as a treat. I'm glad I did! If it wasn't for the price I would give this full marks as it deserves it. When you slather onto your skin it's a clear...

I love the pump action dispenser as it saves on waste and once you know how many pumps you need you will not need to use a drop more. When I initially put this product onto my face I felt like it may be a bit too...

Amazing Quality - Amazing Colours!

I only came across MUA when they had their special deal on. Spend £8 and get this palette (worth £8) for free (Deal now over). I thought I may as well, it's cheap and cheerful so what can I lose. You have 24 colours to...

If I could only live with one fragrance - this would be it. I love the little sharp red rectangle bottle, it stands out and looks very nice. I love how you slide the cover off to revel the actual bottle. I'm unsure...

Sweet

I found this sickly sweet. Reminds me of a Cherry Bakewell. I think the fragrance wore away very quickly which defeats the object. If you wanted to smell of it continuously then you would end up paying a lot of money replacing the bottles. This isn't one for...

Loads of Lather

I found this an excellent product. The only reason that I haven't given it full marks is because I suppose the packaging could be a little bit better. Otherwise every single factor is spot on. The scent is nice and relaxing (as stated on the label). The amount...

Lathers up well, smells lovely!

I bought this body wash when it was on offer for only £1. It's an absolute bargain. I think it's creamy, smells lovely (but not overpowering) and lathers up just right even though you don't need a lot.

Judge This Book by it's Cover - Bold, Stunning & Edgy!

Nice & Easy - Plus the Price is Right!

My friend gave me this as I was saying I needed something for my brows - I find pencils clumpy and awkward to use. I have very light brows and you can hardly see them, this kits was perfect for defining them and giving them shape. I couldn't be...

Doesn't run as much as others.

I have tried a lot of Kohl eyeliners in my time. This is one of the better ones. It has a bold black colour which stands out. The best factor is that it doesn't run down the eyes or inside the eye corner. This is my pet...

This is the first ever primer I have used properly, so I suppose I have nothing to base it on. The thought of primer normally makes me think of a skin which cannot breath...the thought of another layer doesn't sit well with me in general. However,...

The only concealer/highlighter you will even need.

I bought this as part of a 5 piece set - for the price I wouldn't have bought alone. After trying it I have changed my mind. I would definitely spend the full RRP on it when it runs out. The packaging is lovely. Very posh feeling...

Fresh and cooling - it does what it says on the tube!

As you squeeze this cream onto your hands it seems quite thin and watery. However you rub it in and it automatically absorbs into the skin and the smell drifts up with a zingy blast on the senses. It really does cool and it feels amazing. ...

Thick, Silky lushness!

This is a lovely product. It is silky, thick and smooth and leaves the hands feeling AMAZING! It is so thick that you don't need a lot to cover the hands nicely. It doesn't leave a greasy feeling on the hands as it absorbs right in. ...

Luxurious face cream...expensive but worth it (if you have the money)

Good everyday cream as the price isn't high.

I found this cream quite watery and thin. When I applied it I found it greasy so was a bit put off. Maybe it's because my skin isn't naturally very dry. Perhaps a dryer skin surface would absorb the moisture a bit better. You can clearly smell rose but...

As pure as water but even BETTER!

I use this to take my make up off. I soak a cotton wool pad, sit it on my closed eye and any make up just glides off. It stops me rubbing and tugging on my eyes and face when removing make up. The price is a bargain....

Absolutely lovely! My new favorite.

This is a lovely refreshing toner, as soon as you put it on your face you can feel it sooth and cool. There is no strong smell and it absorbs easily leaving no grease or shine.

These face wipes are nice and easy to use. Just whip one out the packet and you have a face wipe, body wipe or even hand wipe. Each wipe is a decent size. The thickness is good too. There isn't a strong smell to them which is good...

This is another winner from Dr Hauschka. It removes make up easily and you don't need a lot to do the whole face...including eye makeup. The smell isn't strong, infact it's nice and natural. I really enjoy using this and I actually look forward to...
